Heart Failure Patient Information

The Heart Failure Toolkit is a comprehensive guide for patients and their family to learn to live better with heart failure. The Toolkit contains a booklet, "Living Better with Heart Failure - Caring for YOUR heart;” a Heart Failure Zones Daily Checklist and a Daily Weight Log and Medication List.

Physician Referral Process

From the initial point of contact, the Sentara Advanced Heart Failure Center Team will guide first-time patients through the referral and screening processes. Upon completion, patients are evaluated by Sentara Heart cardiologists, cardiothoracic surgeons and/or cardiac electrophysiologists to determine the most appropriate course of therapy and/or treatment.

The Sentara Advanced Heart Failure Center Team provides a single point of contact for referring physicians on their patient's progress and ensures follow-up management is communicated upon discharge from the center.
